Choosing a Vocational IT Career as an Alternative to a College Degree

The current generation of young people numbering 1.8 billion – is one-quarter of the world’s population1 and a dominant force now and in the decades to come. However, investments in quality wage and self employment fall short of young people’s aspirations, leaving a growing pool of young jobseekers with an insufficient number of decent jobs. Many education systems are struggling to prepare young people with skills which meet employer’s expectations. 

The COVID-19 pandemic and related global recession have further exacerbated the socio-economic challenges facing youth, which put at risk many of the gains made in recent years to advance young people’s opportunities.

For aspiring college graduate the purpose of attending a college or university is to complete at least 4 years of education to achieve a degree, which will qualify the graduate for a high paying job in the future. Vijay Computer Academy (VCA) gives students a short cut to a large salaried IT career in a much shorter period of time.
